Why You'll Love Our Beeswax Candles


100% Pure Beeswax

100% Pure Beeswax

We use only clean, lightly filtered, 100% pure beeswax from beeswax cappings in our beeswax candles, with no fillers or additives. It's non-toxic properties make it perfect for a clean burning and bright fuel source as a beeswax candle.

All of our beeswax is made in the USA.

Unlike paraffin candles, beeswax is hypo-allergenic, great for people with allergies or other sensitivities, and those of us who want a clean burning candle in our homes.

Our Beeswax Candles are Hand Poured

Hand Poured & Hand Finished

We craft all of our beeswax candles by hand. It takes an experienced hand to ensure each candle is perfect - we don't want any air bubbles, crooked wicks, or other imperfections. Each candle is inspected to ensure it's quality. We have no "factory second" beeswax candles; if the candle doesn't make the grade, it goes right back into the wax melter.

Some candle makers will ship you their product directly after removing it from the mold where it is often unleveled, uneven, and simply unattractive. We've always taken the time to carefully hand finish each candle so that our beeswax candles are as stunning to look at as they are beautiful to burn.

Beeswax is Naturally Honey Scented

Honey Scented

Our beeswax candles naturally give off a luscious honey aroma. Scent varies slightly based on honey, pollen, and propolis present in the beeswax.

A candle's scent throw (i.e. the candle's ability to deliver an aroma) varies based on personal sensitivities and environment.

Beeswax is Naturally Golden Colored

Golden Colored

The raw beeswax we use comes from the hive as a light golden yellow color, which we call "Natural" when we refer to the candle's color. The natural color of beeswax is determined by the remaining pollen and propolis in the wax; this color varies a little between each batch.

Our naturally golden colored beeswax candles do not contain dyes.

Beeswax Bloom

Antique Look

Bloom is a white film that naturally appears on beeswax over time. Our colorful beeswax candles can be kept polished for a shiny modern look or let their age show by allowing the bloom to appear over time.

The bright color of beeswax is a great backdrop for showcasing the white antique finish of the bloom.

Beeswax Candles Are Smoke and Soot Free

Smoke & Soot Free

Using clean burning beeswax candles is an excellent way to keep your home free of the smoke and soot that is a common result of burning paraffin candles.

When burned in a draft free environment with the wick trimmed to 1/4" a beeswax candle will burn bright and clean with virtually no smoke or soot.

Beeswax Generates Negative Ions

Beeswax May Have Health Benefits

Negative ions are most commonly found near moving water, such as crashing waves, thunderstorms, and waterfalls. Negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.

While it is still debated and not yet scientifically proven, it is believed that there are other natural negative ion generators too, including our specialty, beeswax candles.

Learn more about the Benefits of Beeswax

Beeswax Candles are Drip Resistant

Naturally Drip Resistant

A beeswax candle is less likely to drip than other types of candles because of the complex molecular structure and higher melting point of beeswax. This allows the wick to burn the molten beeswax at just the right pace so it doesn't drip out of the wax pool. These qualities combined with a properly maintained wick, a level burning surface, and draft free environment will help prevent drips from occurring.

Beeswax candles are naturally drip resistant. Paraffin candles require chemical additives, like stearic acid, to make them drip less.

Additional Details & Candle Safety


Candle Sizing

Candle Size

We hand pour all of our beeswax taper candles. The dimensions listed are an approximation and will vary slightly for each candle. Please consider each candle a work of art. Our tapers have an approximate base width of 7/8" and fit most standard size taper holders.

We make outstanding candles, but we are humans, not machines. Learn more about why candle size varies.

Colored Beeswax

Color-Added Beeswax

Our color-added beeswax candles (Red, Green, etc.) contain a very tiny amount of candle dye to achieve their vibrant colors. Shade may vary a little between each batch.

The dyes do not contain hazardous solvents or additives (such as naphtha or naphthalene used in other dyes). No dye ingredients are on the California Prop 65 list of cancer causing ingredients.

Burn Times

Burn Time

Burn time is a close approximation and will vary somewhat based on your environment and burning preferences. Our listed burning times are conservative averages, not a guarantee. Proper wick maintenance helps (keep wick trimmed, avoid drafts).

Some wax will remain unused after the wick has been fully burned, this is normal.

 General Candle Safety

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Keep candles away from children.
  • Burn candles in a draft-free environment.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".

 See Beeswax Candle Safety for more safety tips.

 Taper Burning Tips

  • Place securely in a taper holder when burning.
  • Keep taper vertical to avoid drips.
  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish the candle flame mess free.

    Truly dripless!

    Anonymous

    I was looking for candles that burn well and don’t make a mess on candlesticks and tabletops. I’ve burned one half way down and have had no drips. I’m very pleased with the quality of these candles.

    PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS

    Anonymous

    I ordered these candles to grace our holiday tables. They are beautifully made and burn clean giving a wonderful glow to the table. They arrived in perfect shape. I have ordered these before and will do so again.

    Natural color

    Deborah Monti

    I love your candles. They burn exactly as advertised. I use a lot of candles in my antique colonial. The DR chandelier is candle burning. My only complaint is that the color of my most recent order “natural” was much more yellow than the usual muted beige color I love.

    These candles are just perfect. The wax is a good even color and they burn well. I appreciate the flat shipping rate — easy to order a bunch for gifts and not get soaked.

    Excellent candles!

    Anonymous

    I have purchased the 12″ tapers many times over the years, and I am never disappointed. The candles are long burning, smokeless, and dripless. Heather in customer service even accommodated a request to use a discontinued but still available dye color for my last candle order.

    clean burning

    Anonymous

    The wick burns without sooting up, completely to the end of the candle. No ‘carbon wings’ to drop off and cause a mess. Over 9 hours burn time too, which is just perfect

    These provide a lovely, soft light. Our dining room is all muted golds, these look lovely against a white tablecloth. Love the long burn time.

    Bee wonderful

    Springs Mountain Sangha, Kathryn McWilliams

    It took me many months to find the “right” candles for our meditation group. I no longer wanted to use parafin candles because of their oil connection and their smell while burning. I also wanted beeswax candles that were from a clean source, so I found Bee Hive Candles. Our group has been using them since 2009. The delivery is great as well as the discounts for large orders. Very friendly phone conversations as well.
    THANK YOU and THANK THE BEES!!!!

    Burns clean and lasts well.

    Anonymous

    I reviewed the 8 inch tapers, and my comments are the same for these. They last about 10 hours, roughly, I haven’t counted exactly. But I do light my apartment almost exclusively with candle light each night. I ration them, but they do last.

    Easy to order, best price

    Christopher

    The order process is easy, the candles are as advertised, and the price is still the best. Yes, I do shop around and Bee Hive Candles makes the grade with me. This is my second order and I highly recommend Bee Hive Candles.

    Always wonderful

    Kate

    Every year I go searching for beautiful, durable beeswax candles. Since discovering Bee Hive Candles last year, my search is over. I love the delicate scent, the clean burn–the dripless, graceful lines as long as I keep them out of a draft! Trim your wicks regularly, especially with the colored candles, and enjoy this affordable luxury for all special moments. (I like the ridges, since I don’t need felt around my candle bases with taper ridges.)

    Love these

    Virginia

    I have bought dozens of these over the years. I love the color and feel and shape and scent. I think the natural color makes the perfect candle for every candlestick I own. I like that they do not make a scent while burning – since I use them on the dining table and do not want them to interfere with dinner. I do wish they did not have the ridges on the bottom. The ridges show in my candlesticks and are not attractive, which is why I took off one star.
